Yeah, but not obsessively. Worst case, I'll have to accept splitter love from the lower T14 or WUSTL. I'm ok with either.


You're probably an auto-admit at WUSTL and have a shot at USC. Not exactly bad options.


lol too bad i didn't apply to WUSTL.... :(

haha...no, having problems with HTML and trying to quote someone who has quoted someone else that's all.


edit: And apparently having problems with seeing who you were referring to.

Yeah--if s/he can get a school to give them permission to retake the lsat for feb, and find a way to score 7 points higher than they have ever scored (on an actual exam) after sitting for the LSAT 3 times--than you are right. Might as well make it a 170 though. :wink:

you are a mean person.


I don't think the comment was offered in malice, or at least as a shot to you. It was directed at me.

????

Not really sure what I said that was mean, other than what you yourself have already said about retaking:


"i'm not even sure if i should. i get ridiculously nervous before every test and bomb the first section every time."



Now, as I said before, it's up to you whether or not you should retake it. I wasn't trying to tell you either way. As a someone who has been put on UCLA's wait list, I know what you're going through. I genuinely hope things turn out better for you than they did for me.

I would not go to WUSTL expecting it to take you far in CA.

This is probably true. I'm looking to do IP and already have a couple of years experience as a patent agent in EE in SoCal. I think I can make WUSTL work. No sure what finalaspects' career focus is.

:shock:

wtf, somebody with my LSAT but a lower GPA has gotten in, holy crap. I thought my ~3.5 GPA was basically an auto-reject; didn't even bother to apply.

I share that :( for our mutually horrific GPA (at least when it comes to law school, not really anywhere else)

It's a bit annoying being locked out of Columbia, NYU, and Berk at the top, having similar if not worse chances at UCLA or USC as the mid T14, and then dropping down to Fordham for anything else in NYC or Cali.

Would you want to go to school in hippie central? Maybe people with high LSAT scores are more likely to pay Berkeley's ridiculous tuition rates?

It's hardly a terrible GPA if you're trying to find a job in our respective fields or get a decent graduate degree.

Ugh, I forgot about the ballooning tuition, what is it, like $60k/yr in a few years? I guess if I somehow get shut out of the T14, it would be an attractive option. From what I know, the hippie/normal people ratio is lower in the law school than UCB gen pop, so I might be able to stand it.
